    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

Katie Edwards of South Glastonbury, CT is one seriously speedy BAMR—she PR’d AND snagged first place female overall with a finish time of 2:57:57 at this month’s Harrisburg, Pa. marathon. Katie, a stay-at-home mom to Alexandra, 6, Anna, 5, and Luke, 2, has her eyes on spring and fall marathons (she’s not sure which ones just yet) and along with improving her speed in shorter distances, she imagines one day testing her endurance running ultras with her husband, who is a veteran of 50- and 100-mile races.

Best recent run: Believe it or not, and I hate to admit this, but it would probably be my 10-mile run last week, on the treadmill, that started at 4:45 a…

Hump Day Giveaway: 5 (!!) Champion USA Sports Bras

We’ve said it countless times: A supportive, well-engineered sports bra is arguably the most critical piece of equipment a mother runner needs. (Yes, even more important than a pair of running shoes.) That’s why we *heart* Champion Sports Bras so much–and LaJean Lawson, the woman who engineers and oversees testing of Champions full line of sports support. To help you gals find the best bra for your gals, I asked LaJean for her five favorite Champion sports bras. Here are the bras, and what dear Dr. Lawson had to say about them.

Running Happenstance–or Destiny?

Not to get all woo-woo on you, but I sometimes feel like there’s a greater force at work that determines when and where I run. I just can’t believe everything that happens on runs is coincidence, whether it’s finding money in the road, getting a string of walk signals at intersections, or running into a friend. Over the holiday weekend, this grand-scheme-of-things feeling struck twice.

Friday was a cold, wet day here in Portland. With 12 miles under my [Amphipod] belt on Thanksgiving, I was feeling unmotivated and aimless. Seven-year-old Daphne had asked to join  me for part of my run, and that turned into a whine-filled fiasco…

Winner of Garmin Forerunner 10 Twitter Contest

Overall, we were pleased with the response to our first-ever Twitter-based contest: Entrants had to tweet using the hashtags #motherrunner and #lovemyGarmin for a chance to win a nifty Garmin Forerunner 10. Aimed specifically at women runners, the 10 is the ideal size for our wrists, offers a virtual pacer and run/walk intervals, and auto pause (my fave feature, which keeps me from appearing too neurotic at stoplights).

Before announcing the Garmin winner, we wanted to share a few responses from Thursday’s “Mother Runners Give Thanks” post. Dim and I told you a few things we were thankful for this holiday season (well, pretty much year-round, really), and we asked you to share what you were bowing your head for before diving into the feast…

New Yorker and mother runner Karen Janos was among the thousands of runners who had trained hard and were eagerly anticipating this year’s New York City Marathon when Hurricane Sandy arrived, devastating parts of the East Coast and leading race officials to cancel this year’s event. Thankfully the storm didn’t harm Karen and her family, who live north of NYC, but she’s taken part in efforts to help those in need. “I am so thankful for my house, electricity and the safety of all my family and close friends. I’ve been able to donate supplies to people in my town who have driving to the areas devastated by Sandy…
